Oxygen (2021)

Alexandre Aja directs Mélanie Laurent, Mathieu Amalric and Malik Zidi in this French sci-fi thriller where a woman wakes up in a malfunctioning biopod, that while sustaining her life, wants to euthanise her before it powers down.

Pretentious rather thrilling. There are some big revelations towards the end but this techno dystopia take on Buried has minimal grip and the usually watchable Laurent’s character maintains zero urgency given her plight. Falls flat.
